Liked: we were only there for one night

Disliked: They fail to mention the 'stairs' which would be better described as ladders that run through the building and which must be health hazards for backpackers with heavy bags (as we were). The hostel is described as 'nice' which is highly disputable, the place is filthy, reeks of smoke and weed despite several no smoking signs in the rooms, (clearly the smoke alarms are just for show) sheets and towels were unclean, bathrooms were filthy as were the walls in rooms, ceiling tiles were broken and falling out. The 'mini-supermarket' they describe in their overview is a fridge, one which can be found in every single hostel we stayed in, clearly just their attempt to find a positive about their hostel to encourage visitors.

Liked: The staff were really friendly and the location is perfect! I loved the stears in the hostel. They are so Amsterdam. You get your own locker and key and clean towels whenever you ask for it. They have a refrigerator and stove on the hostel.

Disliked: It's a bit expensive but I think for being in Amsterdam it's a good price..

Disliked: Way too expensive, but I think most of the hostels in Amsterdam are. They also BLASTED the same horrible songs all day everyday.

Liked: It is very good located, near to the central station and near to the red light district. Everythingh was ok to me there, I think it is not a good thing to stay in the red light district, too noisy, but you can walk or bike from Mevlana to everywhere in the city, and nothing its too far. You can have a tram almost in the front door. The people was very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: mmm. It was really ok, I have nothing to complain about. But also, I usually don't spend too much time in the hostel, I just go there to sleep.

Liked: PERFECT location, right across from the city center and near the Anne Frank Huis and the Red Light District. Everything is within walking distance and the staff is very friendly.

Disliked: A little dirty, and be careful of the stairs- they are so steep. We stayed in a dorm and there isn't really a shower (just a curtain and a faucet, so the floor gets soaked.) There are two rooms, one is spacious when you walk in and the second room is so cramped. There is less than a foot of walking space in between the beds and there was a window above our bed that someone who was sweeping the roof brushed all the dirt and leaves into and it got all over our bed :\

Liked: Location! Right by the red light district and 10 min walking from the train station.

Disliked: Nothing really. The floor of the bathroom got wet because of the shower, but that's kinda what you have to expect, when you choose hostels instead of hotels.
